Every year about 2.2 Lakh new patients of End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) get added in India resulting in additional demand for 3.4 Crore dialysis every year. With approximately 4950 dialysis centres, largely in the private sector in India, the demand is less than half met with existing infrastructure. Since every Dialysis has an additional expenditure tag of about Rs.2000, it results in a monthly expenditure for patients to the tune of Rs.3-4 Lakhs annually. Besides, most families have to undertake frequent trips, and often over long distances to access dialysis services incurring heavy travel costs and loss of wages for the patient and family members accompanying the patient. This therefore leads to financial catastrophe for practically all families with such patients. With substantial gain in quality of life and extension of progression free survival for patients, families continue to stretch financially to make large out of pocket spends. It has been felt that both in terms of provision of this important life saving procedure and also for reducing impoverishment on account of out of pocket expenditure for patients, a Dialysis program is required. Hon’ble Prime Minister, in his address after the presentation by Secretaries Group on Health and Education, desired that a mechanism should be worked out to provide improved access to dialysis services. Accordingly, MoHFW with support from the National Health Systems Resource Centre (NHSRC) studied relevant models on Dialysis services being practiced under PPP mode. These included models of West Bengal, Kerala, Karnataka, Mumbai and Delhi NCR. Further, a consultation with experts in this field, experts from AIIMS & PGIMER as well as private service providers was held in the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare on the 16th Feb 2016 to discuss the modalities of envisaged program. Draft RFP and Service Level Agreement for the Dialysis in the PPP mode in the district hospitals were prepared and were shared with the states and valuable feedback was received. The Dialysis Program under Public Private Partnership was formally announced in the Union Budget 2016-17 by the Hon’ble Finance Minister.

National Mental Health Programme

It is estimated that 6-7 % of population suffers from mental disorders. One in four families is likely to have at least one member with a behavioural or mental disorder (WHO 2001). These families not only provide physical and emotional support, but also bear the negative impact of stigma and discrimination. Most of them (>90%) remain un-treated. Poor awareness about symptoms of mental illness, myths & stigma related to it, lack of knowledge on the treatment availability & potential benefits of seeking treatment are important causes for the high treatment gap. The Government of India has launched the National Mental Health Programme (NMHP) in 1982, with the following objectives: 

  1. To ensure the availability and accessibility of minimum mental healthcare for all in the foreseeable future, particularly to the most vulnerable and underprivileged sections of the population; 
  2. To encourage the application of mental health knowledge in general healthcare and in social development; and 
  3. To promote community participation in the mental health service development and to stimulate efforts towards self-help in the community. 

District Mental Health Programme

  • Regular Psychiatric OPD are conducted at both District Hospitals.
  • Camps are conducted by District Mental Health Team at Schools.
  • Patients are also counselled at both the District Hospitals.  
  • Medical Officers and RBSK Doctors are trained for prevention, early detection  and referral of  common mental health illnesses at IPHB, Bambolim – Goa.
  • IEC Activities are conducted at District Hospital, Sub – District Hospital, Urban Health Centres, Community Health Centres, Primary Health Centres.

Changing Diabetes Barometer -Goa Program – Backgrounder

Executive Summary

 

Non-Communicable Diseases – A Silent Killer

  • Today non-communicable diseases NCD’s (Cardiovascular disease, Chronic Respiratory Disease, Cancers & Diabetes) are a silent killer. 
  • Government of India has a strong commitment to address NCDs
  • We believe that timely detection and treatment can help people with diabetes and other NCDs lead a healthy, complication free life.

Goa has a high prevalence of diabetes at 10.3% vs a national average of 8.8% and that is why we are committed to reduce the burden in Goa

We have been working on this since 2008 under the Changing Diabetes® Barometer (CDB) programme and achieved some milestones 

  • Reached out to > 3 Lakh people with awareness programmes
  • > 100 patient camps conducted and 32,000 people tested for diabetes 
  • Trained >600 doctors & nurses, 1,200 Anganwadi workers 
  • Goa was the first state in India to launch a “diabetes registry” and > 7,000 people with diabetes were registered 

The current government in Goa, wants to renew focus on NCDs starting by focusing on diabetes 

We would like to systematically work on improving care in Goa through a 2 -phase project

Phase 1: Make sure that everyone gets better access to care for diabetes and related complications in all our government hospitals

    • All government medical centers will provide high standard of care through trained doctors and nurses 
    • Treatment of medicines to ensure better quality of life will be provided for free at all these centers
    • The government will ensure there is high awareness on improving diagnosis and will build an online registry to monitor progress on the services provided
    • For this the government will tie-up with multiple private partners and support this endeavour 

Phase 2: Other NCDs like hypertension, Cancer and respiratory diseases will be under similar focus based on our learning in Phase 1

 

Current Health Care Scenario in Goa

    1. Public health expenditure in Goa is almost four times the national average
    2. Goa’s infant mortality rate is among the lowest in India
    3. 94% of women in the state participate in household decisions 
    4. 96.9% of all births take place in hospitals as against the national average of 79%




Insights on NCDs status in India

    1. NCDs contribute to around 5.87 million deaths that account for 60% of all deaths in India. 
    2. 1 in 4 Indians is at risk of dying from a NCD before they reach the age of 70
    3. There are over 72 million people with diabetes in India. In 2017 about 21% of the total global deaths related to diabetes happened in India
    4. In 2017 about 21% (~1 million) of the total global deaths related to diabetes happened in India. 
    5. Between 2012-30, diabetes treatment in India will cost ~ INR 10 trillion.

 

Learning from the earlier Goa initiative: 

  1. The program helped to have a mean estimated HbA1c value reduce from 7.18% (estimated from FBS) to 6.2% in people who were part of the diabetes registry. 
  2. The project also helped avert 17,600 probable cases of micro vascular complications (Eye, Kidney and Nerve diseases) in the Goa population.

There is strong evidence that early detection and treatment of type2 diabetes has a positive impact on disease progression, leading to fewer complications and increased life expectancy for people with diabetes. In fact, early detection of diabetes and pre-diabetes is cost-effective because it enables timely treatment which can delay and hinder complications as well as increase life expectancy.

 

To address the diabetes challenge, a comprehensive and integrated plan of action based on the existing knowledge of cost-effective and reliable solutions, led by government in partnership with private entities, coupled with vigorous efforts to update awareness about the disease, can help in achieving success against diabetes.

Changing Diabetes Barometer – 2018 – 20 

The Changing Diabetes Barometer(CDB) is a Novo Nordisk Education Foundation initiative that works as a quality monitoring system for diabetes management to measure the gains made in the fight against diabetes focusing on quality of care and patient outcomes.

The Goa CDB program include:

    1. The launch of 15 Community Diabetes Centers
    2. Free treatment for all Goans with diabetes 
    3. In –depth training based on latest international curriculum for government doctors and health workers
    4. At- home counselling for people with diabetes by dedicated diabetes educators
    5. Launch of digital diabetes registry to track patient progress.

The ultimate, aim of the program is to give the people of Goa the best care through the best trained healthcare professionals, best treatment and best follow-up, working towards a healthy & progressive Goa

  • The Government of Goa is committed to delivery of quality healthcare services for all citizen of the state. The re-launch of the Changing Diabetes Barometer programme will provide comprehensive diabetes care to over 3 lakhs people with diabetes in Goa. Under the programme, the Government of Goa will set up 15 Community Diabetes Centers; provide free anti- diabetic medicines; home visits from ANMS and diabetes counsellors and distribute relevant diabetes education literature at all government hospital and Primary Healthcare Centre.
  • There will also be a roll out of a state-wide diabetes testing program for all adults over the age of 30 years for early diagnosis of diabetes. These steps are bound to reduce the disease burden in the state and change the health profile of the citizens of the state.

Overall CDB Goa – Project Plan

Cancer Registry

 

The Goa Cancer Registry, which was launched in 2009, is a State-Government initiative to build a database of all cancer cases in the state. The aim of this registry is to document the different cancers prevalent in the state. It also gives an insight into epidemiology of various cancers in terms of age, sex and geographic distribution. Presently, all government health centres are reporting cancer cases along with few private centres. The cancer registry can provide useful trends in cancer prevalence. Challenges in building a robust database include reporting rates and coverage from private hospitals.

A consolidated report of Goa Cancer Registry will be made available on this website soon.
